AGO Opinions with Topic: CHARTER AMENDMENTS
AGO 1954 No. 212 >  February 23, 1954
CITIES - CHARTER AMENDMENTS - PUBLICATION - CONSTITUTIONAL REQUIREMENT
CITIES ‑- CHARTER AMENDMENTS ‑- PUBLICATION ‑- CONSTITUTIONAL REQUIREMENT Proposed amendment, Sec. 33-A, to the Bellingham charter could not be validly passed at the general city election to be held March 9, 1954.  Consequently, it should not be placed upon the ballot.  The petition, because of its language, could not be held in abeyance and submitted to the voters at a later election, although this would ordinarily be permissible.
